The Glory Kim Hee-ra Song Hye-kyo and the church confrontation are so pretty
The Netflix series “The Glory” tells the story of a woman who was broken to her soul by violence in her childhood, who carefully prepared her whole life for her revenge and those who fall into the vortex.
Actress Kim Hi-ra is one of the five villains who bullied the main character Moon Dong-eun (played by Song Hye-kyo) in “The Glory,” playing the role of Lee Sa-ra, a painter addicted to alcohol and medicine. Kim Hi-ra was praised for completely expressing Isara, who was addicted to drugs, with her outspoken tone and focusless eyes, leaving a strong impression.
To talk about the most powerful scenes,
In Part 1, the scene with Dong-eun (Song Hye-kyo), who faced the church, was the first shooting. I thought about what to do. Personally, I’m a fan of actress Song Hye Kyo, so I went and said, “I’m a fan…” After rehearsals, the two of us were together, and I said, “Actually, I’m a fan. Thankfully, Hyegyo said, “I’ve heard a lot of stories.” I’ve heard a lot that I’m good at it. I was looking forward to acting today. He said, “I worked hard so that I don’t get pushed back.” I was so thankful. You’ve built up your confidence to release me. I thought I was a media beginner and a rookie, but when I heard that, I said, “Yes, I have some experience in performances, but I won’t lose.” They told me to do as much as I wanted. I looked at them and they were so pretty that I started the line, saying, “It’s so pretty,” and the director said I needed to attack more. (laughs) I was thankful and happy about the first shooting.
The snake scene was also very intense.
The scene where I saw the snake fantasy in Part 2 was resting during the gym scene, and the director came and asked, “Did you see the script for Part 12?” He asked me to tell him if there are any inconveniences or difficulties. “I think it’ll be possible enough at the meeting, and it’ll be a good scene if you show it well, but it could be uncomfortable to express as an actor, so do you have to tell me?” I was so scared. I looked at it to see what it was, but I was excited on the contrary. Yeonjin and Hyejeong also said, “What are you going to do? I’m looking forward to it. I’ll only see Sarah. Actors will want to do better in such a scene. Rather than worrying, there was excitement that I wanted to do so well. If there’s an episode, it’s not CG but real snake. I was acting and he said, “BamBam has arrived.” I was lying down and the director said, “Say hi.” “I’m a snake who’ll act with you.” I got the one that comes close separately, but I’m a senior snake who’s been filming a lot of dramas, so I’m trained, so I move as the trainer tells me to. He acted cute too. It was fun.
There was a class-like relationship among villains.
Hye-jung and Myung-oh had something to gain from us, and we were in a position to give these friends something. Yeonjin Jae-joon was especially like that and I didn’t care about it in the middle. Instead I’m not deliberately ignoring them, I don’t care at all. Hye-jung is not responding and interested in making remarks that she secretly ignores me. I’ve been friends that Yeonjin brought, but because of my natural environment, if I cross the line,
I don’t think it’s intentional, but it’s worse. He seems to think that birth itself is different. We’re friends. Come over? That’s not right.’ Yeonjin and Jaejun say, “You’re below me.” They say, “I’m not interested,” but they don’t even look at it and say, “Go away.” I thought it was mean.
What about the actual religion? I’m also curious about my parents’ reactions.
It’s Christian. My parents are Christian, but they said, “It’s just a drama.” It’s hypothetical and you really said it wasn’t. They liked it more. What are you doing, Mr. Isara? “Are you weak?” And she’s into it. (laughs) I think Sarah believed in her own God rather than the drama expressed Christianity. Because we didn’t copy anything from any religion. I thought I made a god who believed that it would be okay because he would save me rather than “God.” I went to the pastor and talked to him. I thought about what kind of good influence I could have after this. I think it can help you feel more by unfolding it rather than hiding it too much. Rather, I think it was a good opportunity.
“As expected, Kim Eunsook is a writer.” If there’s a part that I thought,
There was probably no ad-lib from the beginning to the last hot spot. The writer and director didn’t want it. I added the degree of action from the fingerprint and split the words, but I did what was in the script. Later, he kept me alive as Sarah if I did my lines to the point where I thought, “Maybe he knew me from the beginning.” I thought it was great just by itself.
Did writer Kim Eunsook say something after watching the drama?
I didn’t have many chances to chat after watching it. When we talked after the filming, the writer said, “You will do well,” and said, “You did so well as Sarah.” They liked my eyes. I think they did it more because it was Sarah’s role. I had a lot of worries and said, “Do whatever you want. I’ll write everything for you.” “Don’t worry and play.” I said thank you to the writer and he said, “You’ll do well, so go ahead.” “Make a good choice.”
